Infochimps Culture: New CEO, Bocce, Opa!

Yesterday we announced some exciting news. We welcomed Jim Kaskade as our new CEO.

To welcome him to the team, we did it the Infochimps way: Bocce.

What’s Bocce? Bocce is a ball sport popular around Europe that is traditionally played on ground courts between two teams.  You throw a smaller ball (or jack) from one end of the court into a zone from the far end of the court. The objective then is for each team to bowl their four balls, trying to throw the balls closest to the jack alternating turns.

That’s right, we’re cultured as well.

So where can you play Bocce in Austin? At Opa! Coffee and Wine Bar. Who knew?

After some competitive games of Bocce, the team relaxed with some good food and conversation.

See the whole team at Polvos! Jim (bottom left) is already in the chimpy spirit, showing off his Infochimps shirt.

Work hard, play hard: An Infochimps philosophy.

If you or anyone you know is interested in the Infochimps philosophy, we’re hiring! So if you know any Designers, Engineers, or Architects who are interested in working with a world class team of friendly geniuses, send them our way.
